‘The duo invigorated hip hop’s conscience with ... lyrical dexterity and philosophical prowess.’
It’s an old school block party as PIAF welcomes hip hop deluxe duo Blackalicious to the stage. Favouring uplifting lyrical jams, these US West Coast legends – rapper Gift of Gab and DJ/producer Chief Xcel – blend spirituality with tongue-twisting rhymes and classic beats. Formed in the early 90s, Blackalicious are synonymous with deep grooves, jazzy backdrops and a commitment to entertain. Inspired by classic hip hop, they maintain an experimental flow and their shows are governed by a deft combination of musical prowess and fun.
